Succession advisory


Company succession poses one of the greatest challenges to owner-managed enterprises. Early and careful planning of the economically viable transition of your business to the successive generation is the key to success. The related task of maintaining an established corporate culture requires especially careful analysis of this topic as well as competent succession advisory.

Tailor-made succession solutions for your business

Rödl & Partner assists you with organising and implementing company succession solutions in line with your expectations, wishes and needs. In this process, we provide comprehensive legal, tax and business advisory. From company law and structuring with due consideration of the relevant tax consequences to private asset succession – you are in the best hands with us.
We place particular emphasis on custom-tailored solutions and concepts that take into account individual preferences with regard to company succession. Experience shows that, alongside comprehensive tax advice, particularities pertaining to company law, succession and family law must also be thoroughly considered.
Succession consulting with support from experts is a basic condition for the success of an early and active succession planning. The planning should consider the predictable case of an exit from the company due to age and also take emergencies into account.
